On Tuesday, October 12th, Tyga voluntarily turned himself in to Los Angeles police after his ex-girlfriend, Camaryn Swanson, accused him of domestic violence. The LAPD said in a statement: “Michael Stevenson [Tyga] went to Hollywood Div around 9:00 am where he was arrested and booked for felony domestic violence, 273.5 A PC. Bail is $50,000. The domestic violence incident occurred on 10/11/21. Due to confidentiality, no information regarding the victim is being released.”
The alleged altercation between Tyga and Swanson reportedly took place early Monday morning, after Swanson showed up at Tyga’s house. Swanson shared photos and videos on her Instagram Stories, in which she has a large bruise near her eye, while she also showed a cuff of her sweatshirt, which appeared to have a bloodstain on it. Swanson wrote, “I’ve been emotionally, mentally, and physically abused and I’m not hiding it anymore. I’m so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this but I have to stand up for myself.”
Tyga has faced various legal challenges in the past, including several lawsuits related to his 2011 video “Make It Nasty” when three women sued the rapper over nudity in the video. Tyga also faced a lawsuit over a debt he allegedly owed to a Los Angeles jeweler, and found himself in a legal issue with his landlord for not paying rent on a Los Angeles home, who also claimed the rapper left the home with damages amounting to over $100,000.
